“Sad but hopeful, this slim little novel was an easy read. I finished it in one day. The whole time I was reading, I kept asking myself, “Who does this remind me of?” The answer: Colm Toibin. It’s not only the spare but nearly perfect writing; it’s the sense of compassion and the people who are just so real. Other than the ending, which happened too abruptly and seemed out of character for Addie, it’s a gem. A worthy finale to Haruf’s fine body of work.”
